Re: "What do you tell people..."
My 5 year old asks me this all the time. I always ask him then why he like lawnmowers so much. He says its because how they work. Well same for me. I enjoy shooting very much but its the mechanics behind it that make is so fascinating to me. Sometimes I'd rather be working on a gun rather than shooting it. Why do you like old cars? Why do you like huge computer gaming systems? same deal its just that since we deal in something that society as deemed dangerous, it don't make sense to them.
Only cowards shoot with their eyes closed....
